Types

Common Types

The current plates are of the 1992 standard, which consist of the one-character provincial abbreviation, a letter of the alphabet, and five number or letters of the alphabet (Ex. 沪A 12345; 京C A1234; 苏A 1P234; 浙B AB987). Previously, all licence plates had used the five-number designation. As the number of motor vehicles grew, however, the number had to exceed what was the maximum previously allowable -- 90,000 or 100,000 vehicles. Therefore there had become a need to insert Latin letters into the licence plate to increase the number of possible combinations. This was first done in the bigger cities with only one prefix. Nanjing, for example, began the change with only the first number, which increased the number of possible combinations to 340,000 (with the exceptions of O & I, which cannot be printed without confusion with the numbers 0 & 1). Further changes allowed the first two places, or the second place alone on the plate to be letters, allowing 792,000 more combinations mathematically. More recently, cities have taken to having the third letter alone being a Latin letter, the rest numbers. The numbers are produced at random, and are computer-generated at the issuing office. Numbers with a sequence of 6's, 8's, or 9's are usually considered to be lucky, therefore special sequences like "88888" or "86888" can be purchased. (A previous licence plate system, with a green background and the full name of the province in Chinese characters, actually had a sequential numbering order, and the numbering system was eventually beset with corruption.) Nanjing (Chinese: 南京 [ ]; Romanizations: NánjÄ«ng (Pinyin) , Nan-ching (Wade-Giles), Nanking (Postal System Pinyin) ) is the capital of Chinas Jiangsu Province and a city with a prominent place in Chinese history and culture. ...


Yellow plates are issue for large vehicles of Chinese nationality, such as trucks and buses. These licence plates usually has the Designate Area and Letter on top of the numbers, as opposed to being beside it. (In addition, they may have the licence number sprayed in large letters on the outside of the truck, or in more prominent places.) Blue plates, the most common sort, are issued for vehicles of Chinese nationality which are small or compact in size. Black plates are issued for vehicles belonging to foreigners, and persons from Hong Kong and Macao. (Black licence plates are handed to vehicles of any size, as long as they are of foreign nationality.)


Military and Police

Military and Police plates also exist, but, of course, are inaccessible to common citizens. These plates are in a white background, with red and black text. The civil police plates have a designated format of X·LLNNN· (X being the geographical abbreviation, N being numbers, and L being possible numbers or letters, 警 meaning police and coloured red). These plates are issued to traffic police, some patrol vehicles, and court and procuratorate vehicles. Armed Police (武警) uses the pinyin abbreviation WJ and use the format WJNN-NNNNN. Military vehicles previously had plates using a code of heavenly stems in red. After a 2004 reorganization, however, military vehicles now use a more organized of prefixes. The designation of "军" ("Military") indicates a miscellaneous military vehicle, "海" being vehicles of the Navy, "空" being vehicles of the Air Force. Vehicles of the various military regions have their own prefixes, being 北 (Bei; Beijing Military Region), 沈 (Shen; Shenyang Military Region), 兰 (Lan; Lanzhou Military Region), 成 (Cheng; Chengdu Military Region), 济 (Ji; Jinan Military Region), 南 (Nan; Nanjing Military Region), and 广 (Guang; Guangzhou Military Region). These plates use the format XL·NNNNN (X being the prefix, L being a letter). The Peoples Armed Police Force (人民武装警察部队; renmin wuzhuang jingcha budui) is a paramilitary police force primarily responsible for domestic security within the Peoples Republic of China. ... The ten heavenly stems (Chinese: 天干; pinyin: ) or ten stems (Chinese: 十干; pinyin: ) are an ancient Chinese cyclic numeral system. ... The Beijing Military Region is one of seven military regions for the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army. ... The Shenyang Military Region is one of seven military regions for the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army. ...

The Guangzhou Military Region is a military administrative region located in the south of the Peoples Republic of China, covering Guangdong Province, Guangxi Autonomous Region, Hunan Province, Hubei Province, Hainan Province, Hong Kong, and Macao. ...


Motorcycles

Motorcycle licence plates are nearly the same as that for ordinary vehicles, but are less in length and look more like an elongated square than a banner-like rectangle. There are two lines of text (province code and letter on the top, numbers on the bottom).


For qinqi or low-powered motorbikes, yellow licence plates are issued throughout.


Embassy and Consulate

Embassy and consulate vehicles have their own licence plate with a red character and six more white numbers. Embassy plates have a black background (following the foreigner plate standard, previously mentioned). Embassies use 使 (shǐ) (for 使馆) and are used only in Beijing. Consulates use 领 (lǐng) (for 领事馆) and are used for representations outside of Beijing. The six numbers on Embassy plates are formatted such that the first three digits represent what foreign entity/organization the vehicle is registered to. The last three digits is generally a sequence, where 001 is (generally) the Ambassador's car. Beijing [English Pronunciation] (Chinese: 北京 [Chinese Pronunciation]; Pinyin: BÄ›ijÄ«ng; IPA: ), a city in northern China, is the capital of the Peoples Republic of China (PRC). ...

Other Types

Vehicles for use in automobile tests, vehicles for use in driving schools (examination and test-driving), and vehicles at airports all have their own separate licence plates.


For automobile tests, licence plates consist of black characters on a yellow background with the suffix shi (short in Chinese for ce shi or test). For driving schools, different plates apply for test-drive vehicles (jiaolian che) and examination vehicles (kaoshi che).


Airports have licence plates with white characters on a green background with the designation min hang (Civilian Air Transportation). This shade of green is slightly lighter than the variant used on normal licence plates prior to 1992. 1992 (MCMXCII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday. ...


Cross Border with Hong Kong and Macao

Licence plates with a black background and the character 港 or 澳 in place of the last number are used for Hong Kong and Macao vehicles, respectively, when they engage in cross-border traffic to and from Mainland China. These plates often exist side by side with a local HK or Macao licence plate on the same car.


Interim Licence Plates

Interim licence plates are a piece of paper to be affixed to the front of the vehicle's window. They appear to have been withdrawn as of recently.


The Short-Lived 2002 Licence Plate Standard

For a short while in the summer of 2002, a new 2002 Licence Plate Standard was instituted in several cities, including Beijing. They enabled number/alphabetical customisation. (The possible combinations were NNN-NNN, NNN-LLL and LLL-NNN, where N would be a number and L a letter. However, although the usage of "CHN", to designate China, was not permitted in the licence plates, that restriction, oddly enough, did not apply to the letters "PRC".) The VIN was also added to the new licence plates, and the plates were blue, with a gradual blue tint at the bottom end of the plates. Black letters were used on the plate. For album titles with the same name, see 2002 (album). ... Beijing [English Pronunciation] (Chinese: 北京 [Chinese Pronunciation]; Pinyin: Běijīng; IPA: ), a city in northern China, is the capital of the Peoples Republic of China (PRC). ...


In late August 2002 new 2002 standard plates had their issuance temporarily interrupted, officially for technical reasons, but actually because some lewd, provocative and controversial number/alphabetical combinations were used. One of the biggest controversies was when a vehicle with licence plate number USA-911 was spotted in Beijing, causing an uproar. Equal uproars were created with such plates as PRC-001, and trademark violations were rife; the plate number IBM-001 was seen. The WTO acronym was also spotted in the licence plates. In a society that is still rather conservative in this topic, the licence plate SEX-001 was the source of yet another controversy. The number 250, an insult in spoken Chinese, was also spotted in some plates.


Possibly due to the controversies as described above, as of summer 2003, the new plates are no longer being issued. Old licence plates of the 2002 standard are not being recalled.


List of prefixes
